The Alzheimer Society of Ontario wants to help you reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia with the #SummerChallenge. This summer we have come up with four simple steps that can help you to keep your brain active and healthy!
Challenge yourself to bring your lunch to work each day, saving you from the unhealthy, but tempting, restaurants near the office! Lucky for you, fruits and vegetables are in season and delicious this time of year! Pick up some healthy greens at your local grocery store and bring some fresh salads and fresh fruit snacks.
Maybe that New Year’s resolution to go to the gym hasn’t quite panned out, but there is no better time than the summer to get outdoors and be active! Explore some of the beautiful Ontario parks and trails, and enjoy the scenery while exercising your body and mind!
Take advantage of the beautiful weather to meet up with friends and family, be it a family picnic or a bar-b-que with neighbors. If you’re enjoying a vacation away from home, write postcards to your friends telling them about the exciting and wonderful things you’ve done on your trip!
Exercise Your Brain:
Have a long list of books you’d like to read? Then jog your brain with some summer reading! Looking for a new activity for the summer? Sign up for an online course or join a cooking class with friends!
It’s never too early or too late to start being brain healthy! So take the #SummerChallenge and help reduce your risk of dementia!
